When the ‘ber months roll in, Filipinos know that Christmas tunes and décors are sure to be heard and seen. We love the feeling of Yuletide cheer when we drop by our favorite entertainment spaces, more so when we participate in Christmas family activities around the metro.
Last November 17, Saturday, Okada Manila is hosting a Christmas tree lighting ceremony that was open to all. Families can enjoy a wonderful time of prancing and dancing inside a world-class destination in the heart of Entertainment City. Okada Manila will begin celebrating the beloved holiday season with a wide array of incredible shows—Christmas choir performances, a meet-and-greet session with Santa, live bands, DJs, and street performers.
Visions of Grandeur to kick off the holiday season
Started at 5 PM, families can enjoy the evening’s entertainment interplay of Manila’s top DJ acts, merry live music from the Zcentido band, and special shows from The Fountain. New viewing decks will be opened for breathtaking views of the world’s largest multicolored dancing water feature. See The Fountain like never before from new vantage points. At 8 PM, the Christmas tree comes to life at the Fountain Foyer in the Crystal Corridor.
To really bring in the Christmas spirit, Chorus Vocales filled the air with songs of the season as they light the magnificent tree, while the full cast of the Okada Manila Entertainment Group elevated the festivities with a thrilling performance to match the high-flying water spectacle.
A festival of Yuletide cheer at an iconic resort
Apart from the show and the performances, Okada Manila will have new stores activating the entirety of the Crystal Corridor starting November 9 where families can enjoy, learn, and create picture-perfect memories. Make room for learning and exploration this Christmas with Mind Museum’s traveling exhibits featuring three mind-blowing themes.
